Let us learn about Where is AutoPilot Assign Profile Button in Intune Portal. I have published two (2) posts on AutoPilot deployment. The first post of Autopilot was to cover the end lab scenario of Autopilot testing. The second was to create a Dynamic Azure AD group to group all Autopilot provisioned devices.
I received several comments via social media, YouTube channel, and blog posts that AutoPilot Assign Profile Button is missing from Intune portal. This blog is to answer those queries.

Where is AutoPilot Assign Profile Button in Intune Portal?
The assign Profile button went missing from Azure Portal -> Microsoft Intune -> Device Enrollment – Windows Enrollment-> Windows AutoPilot Devices. Even I was wondering what happened to the Assign Profile option in the Window AutoPilot devices blade?
Microsoft removed that option from Intune to have a better user experience. We will see in the latter part of this post how you can assign a device to AutoPilot Profile.

What is new in AutoPilot Workflow?
Once you have that Azure AD object for the imported devices, you can create a static (Assigned) or dynamic Azure AD group with that object.
AAD object name will be the device’s serial number, and this name will get changed once the device is completed the AAD join process. The AAD object name will get adjusted to the machine name.
How to Assign a Device to AutoPilot Deployment Profile?
- From Intune blade – Import the device with the same method
- From Azure AD blade –Identity, the Azure AD object, created for the imported device (with Serial number)
- From Azure AD blade – Create a Static (Assigned)/Dynamic Azure AD group with AAD object (step #2)
- From Intune blade – Go to Autopilot Deployment Profiles – Assignments tab – Select the Azure AD group created in step #3
Azure AD Dynamic Device Groups
I would recommend using Dynamic query to create Azure AD dynamic groups. Azure AD active query can be used to tag each device. These tags can be made using ZTDID and ORDERED attributes.
Micheal and Per have posts to explain these scenarios.
I have used the following queries to get devices into the Azure AD dynamic device group.
(device.devicePhysicalIds -any _ -contains “HRDept”)
(device.devicePhysicalIds -any _ -contains “SalesDept”)
